About Magic Targets 2

Addon Support Statement

Hello everyone. I'm no longer actively playing World of Warcraft (and haven't for many months). I'm looking for someone to take over maintenance of my addons. If you're interested, and have at least one released addon, send me a message at [email protected]

Addon Description

Magic Targets is a simple set of frames that shows the current targets of the members raid or party. It's meant primarily for use in raiding to keep track of all the mobs currently engaged in combat. Feature list:

  • Optionally marks your current target and focus target with green respectively blue arrows.
  • Lists the number of people who's currently targeting each mob.
  • Colors each bar based on target status (crowd controlled, tanked, untanked or idle).
  • Shows the icon(s) of the crowd controll methods a mob is currently affected by and optionally shows a countdown timer for the longest duration remaining crowd control method.
  • Automatically adds new mobs as members of the raid targets them.
  • Automatically removes mobs after when they die or when they haven't been actively targeted by someone, or seen in the combat log, for a small period of time. Crowd controlled mobs are always kept on the list.
  • Uses oRA2 and buff detection (defensive stance, bear form and righteous fury) to determine if a player is a tank.
  • Customizable font and font size, bar texture, color and size, and more.
  • Optionally able to listen to events from Magic Marker to prepopulate the list with mobs, including the assigned crowd controlled methods.
  • Optional tooltip shows mob level and type, health percentage, current target, status and Magic Marker assignment. It also lists all players targeting the mob.

About Magic Targets 2.0

MT2 is a major refactoring of the original addon. The layout of the bars is now much more flexible. Not only can you freely decide which data to show on the bars, there are also multiple layouts to choose from. Best of all, the transition to Magic Targets 2 should be transparent. Note that the default layout of Magic Targets 2 is different. If you prefer the Magic Marker 1 layout, go into the configuration options => Bar Labels and select the classic Bar Layout. Comments are welcome!

Configuration and use:

Configuration is done using the Blizzard configuration UI. You can use the FuBar/Minimap button or the slash command /mgt config to open it. To get access to a larger number of fonts and textures you need to install the SharedMedia addons.

Note: The bars are not clickable. Due to the secure templates added in WoW 2.0, this is no longer possible. PvP specific addons get around this limitation by making macros that target players by name. Since NPC names are not unique, this is not a viable solution for Magic Targets.

    please tell me the analog of this addon.

  • #68

    Any chance we'll ever see an update for this one?

  • #66
    The below comment fixed the Bars themselves but now for me the background gets all out of wack in size if i try and adjust the padding
  • #64
    Solution to fix the bug (bar growing) :

    On line 1639 of MagicTargets.lua file:

    write : w = w+(p2/4) instead of w = w+p2

    and delete the config file in WTF (MagicTargets.lua in SavedVariables)
  • #65
    That still grows the bars by a pixel each time (because p2 happens to equal 4 by default). Better than big chunks but still buggy.

    I've posted a bug report and a patch in ticket #3, follow the Development Site link up towards the top of the page to read it, comment, etc.
  • #67
    The fix is submitted now. Something changed in 4.1 (actually most likely a bugfix) and my anchoring was just broken. It's better now (not perfect) and the non-perfect place is changed so sizing works as expected.
  • #61
    Im using the 220104 version and my bars start growing to the right until they are as big as my screen. Happens after every death.
  • #63
    Also grows when resizing in config with test bars on. ie make larger - it grows larger, make smaller - it grows larger. (Haven't tried with test bars off).
  • #62
    Seeing the same thing here:
    http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/9474/magictargetsbug.jpg

    Every few seconds, the right border extends several more pixels. You can see how far the bars got in just a few seconds of a trash fight in the screenshot. I'll try and look at the code after raid.
  • #58
    i set the tank as my focus. i don't see the little blue triangle representing his target, even with the option set. Whattup with that?
  • #57
    in version 4.0.3 this addon dont track player? can you add to track players too?
  • #56
    Is it possible to target mobs with this frames?
    or it just show targets?
  • #59
    I would like to know this as well. Using the latest version, but I haven't figured out how to do this
  • #60
    Read the note, seems its impossible due to secure templates. Shame
  • #53
    Thank you -so- much for updating this mod, it's one that as a tank, I can't live without. Problem though, it just doesn't want to load for me. I have tried all sorts of changes to my addon folder; removing everything else, loading out-of-date addons, not loading any other addons, deleting all other addons, forcing WoW to rebuild it's cache and data directories, but once I'm in game, it's as if there's nothing there. /mgt config yields yellow error messages, there's nothing in interface/addons tab, but on the startup screen I can tick enable/disable Magic Targets 2 to my heart's content. Any other suggestions to get this working? I miss it!!
